Ben becomes 2007 UK junior freestyle champion!

Following his fantastic freewave success, Ben Harwood is ecstatic to achieve his goal this year and become UK junior freestyle champion.

It was a clean sweep with Ben winning the White Air and Poole Windfest events. Both events had light gusty winds, but just enough for Ben to pull off his planing moves. It was great for Ben to share his success with Richard Jones taking home the youth title and Andy ‘Bubble’ Chambers winning the pros.

Ben's now hoping to have a good winter of sailing and get stuck into competition next year; not forgetting all that 6th form work!
